Kurayoshi, Pure Malt 12YO (700ml)
Kurayoshi, Pure Malt 12YO
This is the 12 year old Kurayoshi expression - a blended malt from the Matsui Shuzou distillery in Japan's Tottori Prefecture.
These whiskies are made with malts sourced from Scotland, then blended with Japanese whisky and volcanic-rock-filtered water.
Nose: Flamed orange peel and lemongrass, with a touch of rye bread dough.
Palate: Aromatic barley with a floral edge, develops a fruity core of apple and white grape soon after.
Finish: Lime, ginger and a whiff of smoke.
